Challah in the Boston Area

I had a challah last week that was brought down from the Boston area and it was fabulous!! Almost cake-like and very sweet. Any suggestions?

  1. Probably from Cheryl Ann's Bakery in Brookline (Chestnut Hill); they are delicious and very sweet. Some people feel that they are too sweet but I love them.

    1. Yes, Cheryl Ann is considered a public safety hazard because you must buy an extra one to eat in the car on the way home, and you know what that can do when driving on Boston-area roads....

      (just kidding)

      1. This waws definitely Cheryl Anne's. BTW, you can find her challah in several stores e.g. in Metro west- Dewar butcher shop in Wellesley, Volante's farm in Needham.

        1. You might also try Bodavi Bakers at 551 Comm Ave in Newton. Not as sweet as Cheryl Ann's, and in my opinon better.

          1. Cheryl Ann's hands down. You can buy it at the Shaw's in Commonwealth Ave. if you can't get to the Butcherie in Brookline. I also love the challah at Clear Flour Bakery in Brookline.
